The peace of nature - ah!! Opportunity to see endangered ringed seals, beavers etc. at close range. Fantastic scenery by canoeing... Encampment is possible only in specified areas and they can be congested. Also some of the chassis for the tents are out of order (the area is rocky and mostly it's hard to find other places to put the tent). But exellent fire places and well maintained dry toilets.
Beautiful area to kayak or canoe around. Some rental cottages available, with no motorized vehicles allowed. Watch out for local fresh water seals and beawers!
